Who doesn't love the sublimely creamy texture of guacamole? First, nail down the elemental recipe with avocado, onions, garlic, cilantro, and lime. Once you've got that down, play around with variations that include adding bacon, or even pomegranate and mango for a sweet-tart kick. Or channel this creamy dip at lunchtime by making a guac-inspired green salad.
